Surveillance culture and its impact on student-teacher relationships in higher education

20 March 2018

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

In this talk, senior lecturer from the University of Edinburgh Dr Jen Ross will draw from David Lyon’s recent work on surveillance culture, and put this in the context of established and emerging technology-related developments in higher education. Using examples including biometric attendance monitoring and algorithmic plagiarism detection, Dr Ross will explore how teachers’ active participation in “attempt[ing] to regulate their own surveillance and the surveillance of others” (Lyon 2017, p.824) is changing the nature of relationships between students and teachers.
